Medical Mission: Peru December 2015

Medical Mission: Peru December 2015 group of volunteers
My two weeks in Northern Peru with Global Health Volunteers were a wonderful experience.  Our team was made up of 40 volunteers, including surgical staff, translators, pharmacy techs, and warehouse supply and support teams.

We used the local hospital’s OR and worked long, hard hours to treat patients that otherwise could not afford treatment.

We had three surgical team; a gynecology team, general team, and plastic surgery team and in total, completed 118 surgeries in two weeks!

Our clinical team was also able to treat over 700 patients, so nearly 900 patients were seen and treated, free of charge!

The hats donated by KimKaps were a huge hit – they were gone within a minute of offering them to the group! We had so much fun together and it was a wonderful experience.  Thank you so much for your contribution – sharing fun surgical caps is a great way to make friends!
